In this post I mentioned that I would be staying at Kapunda during mid-August spring camp with with Suzanne’s Lavender Trail walking friends. I planned to go off daily into the Murray Mallee to make photographs for the Eye on the Mallee project, whilst the others continued with walking the trail around the Eudunda area.
The camp turned out somewhat differently to what I’d planned. I photographed around Kapunda, Eudunda and Robertstown; explored along the Eudunda-Morgan railway line; and recovered my memories of the roadtrips that I had made in the 1990s around the mid-north of South Australia. I also checked out some sections of the Tothill Ranges and the Burra Creek Gorge Reserve near the locality of Worlds End.
I did a roadtrip to Galga and Mantung in the South Australian Mallee, and to Morgan on a seperate day trip, as I’d planned. But I spent more time recovering my memories of the 1980-90s roadtrips around the mid-north, than I did exploring the Murray and South Australian Mallee to make photos for the Eye on the Malle project.
